You may add additional documents/proof that you wish to add to your case which you haven’t presented in your application before.

Please do not send your passport together with your appeal.

In case of a change in your decision, the Consulate General will contact you and ask for your passport.

If you will contact us about your appeal, you may reach your application by the dossier (beteckning) number which is written on the upper right side of your decision letter.

It is the Consulate General that initially decides whether to review the decision. If it decides not to change its decision, the case is forwarded to the Migration Court in Sweden.

If someone else signs the appeal on your behalf, that person must be authorized to represent you (power of attorney). The power of attorney document must be signed by you and submitted in the original together with your appeal.
